In Memory of Gaia Gia Nova

This is one GoFundMe submission you never, ever, want to have to create.....

On May 5th, 3-month old Gaia Gia Nova was dropped off by her amazing mother Jennifer at her grandmother's house to be watched while she went off to run errands.  It was the very first time since Gaia was born that her mother was apart from her..and it would be the last time she would ever see her alive again.

Gaia's life was cut short that by a split-second, instantaneous attack by the family dog.  It is absolutely unimaginable that such an awful event would occur.  The family is absolutely devastated, and the mother --my wonderful, beautiful friend of 7 years -- has to fight for the will to go on in this life without her daughter; we will rally behind her to keep her as strong and as comforted as we can...this would have been her very first Mother's Day ever this Sunday

As a single mom, my friend Jennifer worked hard to provide for her and Gaia...and it is at this stage where she needs a helping hand financially as it would be difficult for any parent to function at such a tough time.  

Friends, and anyone who has a heart and compassion within it: I RARELY in my life ask anyone for anything...but I need you today.  I need you to make a donation, big or small. 

This is a time-sensitive fund-raising effort, as final expenses will rack up rather quickly.  Once our goal is reached, the funds will be released to Jennifer to take care of what she needs to.

No parent EVER wants to bury their children, especially not at just three months old.   I thank you all so much in advance for any help you can provide. #RIPGaia #gonewaytoosoon
